I have a few questions about finding equations and such for parabolas
I attempted both of these problems and would like some help finishing, or re-doing them if needed.
Find the vertex of the parabola y=2x^2-12x+23.
Am I on the right track here? I know its not done, but I don't know how to go from here assuming I did it right to begin with.
Write the equation of the parabola with focus (3,4) and directrix x=1.
For the vertex I got (2,4)
So the equation so far is (x-2)^2=4P(y-4)
Help from here getting P would be great also assuming I've done the work correctly...
Thanks a bunch!
